Whichever one they want, as long as it's not taken.

When the first four contestants are called down (pre-COVID with an audience present), do they have to stand at the podiums based on the order they were called (first called goes to red, second called blue, third called yellow, fourth called green)?

Or, do they just go to whatever podium they want to when running down to the podiums?

Anywhere they want, so long as it hasn't already been taken by one of the contestants before them.

Secondary hypothesis: I think they are more or less directed to go to a specific podium, since the majority of the episodes this season have gone red, yellow, blue, green or yellow, red, green, blue, and recently some contestants have gone toward one podium and then jetted to another out of nowhere. However, there are have been a couple of aberrations to suggest that if they don't see where their directed to go to, the show doesn't reshoot and just goes with it.
"If any show, forget sports, Price is Right, [the audience is] the star of the show. Somebody... coming on down and losing their minds, and ... crying, that's the show. The show isn't me, the show isn't necessarily [a] can of soup, how much that is, it's watching people go bananas, and there's going to be some of that missing."

Seems the most sensible would be to fill the two middle ones first (whichever is closer to the side you come out), just since then the 3rd & 4th contestants wouldn't be walking behind the others to get to their spots.  Not that it probably matters as all are spaced out pretty well, just a bit less passing interaction that way.

Note: Piggybacking off my question after reading the responses (thank you to those who have responded). Again, asking this regarding pre-COVID audiences.

So, if the first four can go to whatever podium they want to (assuming they are not directed where to go), the first one called could go to the green podium, letting them bid last during the 'one bid'?

Could and frequently did (on pre-Covid recaps, look for a note towards the top about "first four order" or something like that).

Is there any Dice Game wipeout with all four guesses in the numbers incorrect? I've never seen any playing since the game's inception, since the odds of failing to guess one right or roll a number exactly right would be very low.
